Second Blogaversary Give-away

Hi All

This is a sticky post and will remain at the top of my list until the
29th January.

I can't believe that two years ago on that date I decided to have a go at blogging to post some of my creations; what an incredible journey it has been. I never envisaged that I would continue this as a hobby and that my love of all things arty would grow and develop as it has,
and oh how I have, and still am, loving it.


So to celebrate I am having a give-away and the winners will be decided by Mr Random Org on the 29th January.
I will have three winners and prizes.
They are -

A brand new set of T!m's stamps for my current followers only up to number 284.
This is a thank you for being part of this incredible journey and giving me support and love.


The new distress inks brought out by Ranger for Christmas - but the colours are just gorgeous and 4 Promarkers.
This is for any follower old and new.

A new set of texture fades - Bingo and Collage, plus two of T!m's stamps that somehow are extra to requirements - again they are brand new.
This is also for any follower.

I am very near 300 followers and if I reach that amount before the 29th January I will add another prize.


All I ask is that you leave me a comment and tell me you have put the picture below on your sidebar. Thanks.



I feel so blessed that you are part of this amazing journey with me. 
When you leave a comment make sure I have a link to you so I can pop over to see you too.

Thank you and have fun with creating and making beautiful art.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
